Art & Life


November 19, 2017


Sunday. To bed and to sleep after nine to awaken at five minutes before six after a good night's rest. So good. A clear day, a drive to breakfast worrying a bit the car battery is getting low after driving so little these last several weeks. We should take care of that.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast. Still under one-fifty on the scale this morning, but wondered if that omelet I'd had in yesterday's breakfast hadn't contributed to the somewhat wobbly outing and so decided to play it safe. And it tasted good.

The Chronicle didn't include the color comics this morning. For all the news I still read the comics with one or two exceptions, but otherwise the attitude upbeat heading out the door into the sun to drive home. Have nothing on the list for today, although it's embarrassing to have to sift through old pictures for the photograph up top and the one behind the heading. Not enough to do anything about it, at least not yet, but still embarrassing.

Later. I was pretty much whacked out by this time yesterday, although “whacked out” is a bit over the top. I'd stopped adding anything here, although I did process the photographs I'd taken. Today it's been watch some football on television before finally talking myself out the door to at least take a look over at the lake and see who was doing the drumming I could hear in the distance.

Went by the trash container a group had been working on Friday (was it Friday?) and this time took pictures. Most of these containers in the area have designs like these and it's nice to see they're still actively creating them.

A drummer group I haven't seen before was drumming at the pergola and so more pictures, the temperature and the colors for the first time looking like we've finally entered into fall. So sat for a few minutes before returning to the apartment. Not much of an outing, but a couple of pictures and learning I wasn't having any of yesterday's vision problems or odd head in a bubble distractions. That cheese omelet day before yesterday for breakfast?

Go back and look at your entries for days when you've had it before. What were the afternoons like then? Either that or shut up!

Had the hamburger patty on the 12th and the afternoon was wobbly, the eggs Benedict the day before that with wobbly results, the intervening days were filled with oatmeal and plain waffles with fruit, filled because I'd been bitching about the vision/head/bubbles I'd been experiencing eating the other stuff.

So you're back to oatmeal and waffles?

Until I forget. Early in the morning is more dangerous territory for memory glitches and such.

The photo up top was taken one year ago in November with a Nikon D500 mounted with a 24-120mm f 4.0 Nikkor VR lens.
